Le Comte de Monte-Cristo
Paris: Bureaux du Journal Le Siecle, 1846.. Paris: Bureaux du Journal Le Siecle, 1846. One of the earliest known editions of The Count of Monte Cristo. Original brown pebbled cloth, gilt-stamped on front cover and spine. Timbre Royal stamp on page 167. Spine rebacked with the original spine laid down. Extremities heavily rubbed, a very good copy,illustrated with the frontispiece portrait and 29 plates on thicker paper by Gavarni, Johannot and others, each with a tissue guard. This copy includes plates, rarely found in this scarce edition. There are no copies of this edition recorded in OCLC or the Bibliotheque nationale de France, and in the last twenty-five years no copies have appeared at auction. The Count of Monte Cristo, in particular, is "perhaps the outstanding work of fiction to reveal the futility of human vengeance, even when it attains it sutmost completeness. Maurice Baring calls it the most popular book in the world" (Frank Wild Reed). "One of the best thrillers ever written" (Reid, 134).
